It’s that time of year again, and once again, you’re stuck in the dilemma of trying to find the perfect gift at the last minute. But have no fear—you don’t have to resort to buying Mum a lottery ticket and a pack of sockings.
Here’s a list of shops that deliver lightning fast, and items that are unique and still thoughtful (no one will ever find out that it was a last minute gift!). Hopefully this is enough to reignite your creativity and put your fears to rest.
Don’t underestimate the power of Amazon! The online retail giant is likely your best bet if you’re buying gifts for the whole family, and working off a specific list. You can knock out a Kindle Fire for your spouse, a hardcover boxed set for your Harry Potter-loving son and even a fancy new espresso machine for yourself in a matter of minutes. If you’re a member of Amazon’s Prime program, you can order gifts on Christmas Eve and for about £3.99 per item, receive them on the same day, according to Amazon spokeswoman Julie Law. Otherwise, your last full day to order is Dec. 23, with a 3 p.m. cutoff time. If you’re really stumped, you can always order an online gift card and send it via email on Christmas morning.
PGetting Personalknows that nothing says thoughtful like a gift that has the recipient’s name or initials on it. Customers can order personalized gifts at Getting Personal until Dec. 22.
It is also worth noting that Next offers expedited shipping so everything you order from their site is delivered to you before Christmas!
Gift Items For the Family
Watches are the one of the best gift items since they’re so ubiquitous and can suit everyone and anyone. Especially the trending rose gold watch will flatter any recipient, as it serves as the perfect accessory and time manager (so they won’t have to go through the pain of last minute gift shopping, too). Stores like Watches of Switzerlandoffer a wide variety of in-trend brands and watches for you to choose from for the holiday season.
Perfume or cologne makes the perfect last minute gift. Go out and test smell a variety of fragrances and choose the one that reminds you of that person (+1 thoughtful point!) If you’re still clueless, you’re in luck since just in time for the holiday season, Burberry launched a limited edition gold bottle of Burberry Body. This warm and sensual fragrance captures the perfect balance of sweet florals, warm sandalwood, vanilla, amber, and musk encased in a beautiful golden and bronze atomiser.
You haven’t had a facial until you’ve experienced one of Sarah Chapman’s Bespoke Facials with either herself or one of her Dermal Therapists at her Chelsea clinic. This is the perfect luxurious gift for the holidays and a great way to start the New Year for your mum, a best friend, or even yourself! Starts from £140, available at Sarah Chapman.
